Hi all,

Has anyone had any experience changing a brake caliper on these sleds? Last year mine was sticking so I had my dealer rebuild the old caliper and then on my next trip it was still doing the same thing. This year I just bought a whole new caliper assembly and was just curious how difficult of a task it is and if there are any good tips about doing it before I got started. Thanks.

its pretty easy
loosen the track
remove the secondary clutch, and rotor guard
take the snap ring off the drive shaft
un hook the brake line
3 bolts inside the tunnel hold the caliper on.

install is opposite, just use new copper washers when attaching the brake line

Awesome! Thanks for the reply. Doesn’t sound to bad to do. Where do you get new copper washers at? Hardware store?

Three years ago at the 15k mile mark I had brake problems that included sticking brakes. I replaced the pads and my problems went away but at the time I did not know why. A year later (20k miles) I had occasional lack of braking authority. After examination I found a groove worn into the aluminum caliper housing where the pad backing plate contacts the housing. That explained everything. I removed the groove and the problem went away. The problem stayed away until I got rid of the machine. This might not be your issue but if it is please report it for everyone’s benefit.
